Optical Switch Tray (OST) Multimode (Discontinued)

Multimode optical switch trays from Polatis that utilize DirectLight® beam-steering technology to deliver high performance in a compact, fully non-blocking, multimode product.

The multimode OST can form the integral part of a resilient network, for connection management in a business continuity setting or as part of a shipboard communication system. Since there is no regeneration, no signal monitoring and no signal modulation is introduced, the OST is a secure node for carrying sensitive communications.
